Sharon Stone To Host Screening Party For Kyrgyzstan Oscar Hopeful (by WENN)

 

Sharon Stone has given first-time director Sadyk Sher-Niyaz a big Oscar boost by agreeing to host an awards season screening of his new movie, Kyrgyzstan's submission for the Best Foreign Film Academy Award. 

The actress will introduce Kurmanjan Datka Queen of the Mountains before a screening at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on 4 November (14).

 

Thrilled filmmaker Sher-Niyaz tells Wenn, "It took several years of heartache and delays to achieve a film that really captures the importance and the magnitude of Kurmanjan for both myself and my country, so it is quite an honour to have the support of an actress with the calibre of Sharon Stone."

 

Stone insists she was happy to be asked to champion the film: "Women have a unique and natural ability to tap into remarkable strength and courage to become great leaders and that is whythe story of Kurmanjan really resonated with me."

 

The film, about 19th century Kyrgyzstan leader Kurmanjan Datka, has already won a clutch of awards, including Best Film and Best Screenplay at the New York Eurasian Film Festival and the Audience Award at the China Silk Road Film Festival.
